We believe in enabling people to lead more fulfilling lives. Our role is to assist with everyday challenges whilst giving as much independence as possible and maintaining dignity in old age. Everything we do is geared towards developing the very best support and environment for our residents
Residents are encouraged to pursue their hobbies and interests. Some great fun and therapeutic activities are laid on from old favourites like bingo and quizzes to keep the mind sharp, to pet workshops and a gardening club for the more adventurous! Musicians, actors and entertainers regularly put on great shows and performances.
A Hairdresser comes in each week and a private Chiropodist visits regularly. All the local GP’s surgeries visit the home as required so residents are able to continue to use their usual GP, if local.
We source our food locally as much as possible and our cooks and kitchen assistants prepare all meals in our kitchens from fresh ingredients. Delicious home made cakes are a particular favourite with our residents.
As a small care home, Somerset House is able to retain its intimate homely feel with cosy lounges, and attentive staff who are really able to deal with the needs of individual residents. We are active in the local community working with charities and churches and every summer we hold a garden party for neighbours and friends from the surrounding area.
We help our residents to live here free from the worry or stress often associated with old age.
